Christian Union

Welcome to the CU webpage!

The Christian Union is a society which is committed to giving every student at Derby University the chance to hear and respond to the gospel, the good news about Jesus Christ. We meet every week to encourage each other and be equipped, as well as running events throughout the year that all students are welcome to!

We'd love for you to join us or come along to any of our events and find out more about Christianity! This term, CU will be online but our mission is the same and being a community is still so important to us. Our weekly meetings will be a place where we can have deep discussions about the Bible and life's big questions as well as socialising, worshipping and praying. 

The Christian Union is not a substitute for church but we love partnering with the local churches here in the city and would encourage all our members to get involved in one. 

We are supported by UCCF: The Christian Unions, an organisation that helps to equip Christian Unions in universities across the country.

Feel free to follow us on our social medias to stay updated:


What to expect:

  • We're planning to have freshers events throughout September and October- these will be a great time to get to know other students and let you give the society a go! Keep your eyes on our socials for more details about these!
  • We'll have weekly CU meetings, happening online every Thursday at 7pm
    • In this, we'll meet as a whole CU as well as going into smaller Impact Groups
  • Online and socially distanced events throughout the year open to all students! We still want to have lots of socials, they will just be adapted to fit within the guidelines so that everyone can stay safe
    • Part of the reason we put on these events is to give students a chance to ask the big questions we all have about life and the Christian faith
  • For members, we'll also have morning prayer meetings each week, and occasional prayer and praise evenings
